Everyone who sees it thinks it's 

A black bear rug. 

 

You get tired of correcting them you just let them think that.

 

Are those clear hole covers over your holes? Where did you find those?

Let's put it to you this way. With the amount of 10" power augers I have amassed. 

If the Icegator ever fails me I'm certain I won't be stranded without a hole.20170310_153304.thumb.jpg.3279f5f3af50f7ba140309e7c88b1a89.jpg

First step:

 

Remove "10 inch power auger" from your Christmas list. ;)

I have the icegator and nils 10".  BEST system out there!!!!  i cant believe how great that item works.  There is so much torque with that head unit.  Sad that the company closed, but based on the comments i saw on their facbook page they had some customer service issues amongst other items.  making people wait 18 months for an auger bit is crazy.  I hear their 9.5" auger bit is amazing, but i dont think you can find any for sale.

I have seen Gregs YouTube videos that's not arrogance. That is called knowing your stuff. 

That 9.5" light weight bit with stackable flighting for deep ice is ahead of its time just like the Icegator high speed electric power drives are.

I would love to find one.

My favorite thing about the Icegator is the cutting sound it makes.

I feel very fortunate to have one knowing the high demand and coming from just a mom n pop operation. We are lucky. 

It also attracts attention on the ice like a supermodel.

Never thought he had arrogance.  He built a very simple head unit that can beat any of the standard ice auger companies.  When you take it apart you just sit and cant believe that the simplicity of it.  It may weigh a bit more than others, but i will never go to another unit until i see one that can beat the icegator pushing a 10" bit.  its just a shame that he either grew too fast or just took on too much too soon without managing timelines of incoming parts and build times.  if the batteries were coming from overseas i know that there could be delays and that is hard to deal with.

There are way too many emotional 100+ posts out there as to why IG went belly up but when you get a reputable company like Nils with you and still can't make it I'm sure it was more than the inability to get batteries. 

The 9 1/2 inch drill looks interesting though, did they ever get any to market? There must be a manufacturer out there somewhere with a bunch of them. Anybody know where they came from?

I have talked to one person who has the bit.  Said it was amazing but upset that they were not able to get the extra flightings.  I looked around to find anyone that could have made such a unit but cant come up with anything.
